Setting up on our pitch. This year alongside the pond
Pride of place on our stand was this Zwarte Zee. Donated to the club by Alan Jordan and
restored by Jeff Ayres
All quiet before the public arrive
It was good to see some freighters
An overflow of warships
beutifully nailed planking on this characterful cruiser
Nice boat.... could be bigger?
Some really well detailed tugs
A good starting point for lifeboats
Classic Italian style varnish and chrome
Rows and rows of boat club stands
Large pitches from Dover to Herne Bay
The sun shone until 4:00pm
Club stands surround the pond
Two Chris' and two Johns face a broadside from Iron Duke
The pond was busy all day
You could see more boats....
....if I hadn't put this big white thing in the way
Built on a hull after shortening and removing its clipper bow!
Keep on truckin'
All made from re-cycled material!
One concession to practicality - it has a tow-bar
Why have one engine when you can have two?
The car racing involved some flying
The drone racing course - spectacular flying
A racing drone - the big battery gives just 4 minutes
Tanks trundled around the site
The man in the background gives an idea of size!
Its not fictitious, I've seen it and here's the photo to prove it!
Another Waverley. The real thing next month
I wouldn't row there Mark, Martin's ORCA thinks there's a 'Great White' shark neaby
Appologies to the Thames barges, the many traders and 'planes for no pictures this time.
